Students that passed physics ,Set P=80 Students that passed chemistry , Set C = 70 Students that passed maths , Set M = 40 Students that failed all the 3 subjects = 10 Total = P + C + M  (PnC + CnM + PnM) + (PnCnM) + Neither =>100 = 190  (PnC + CnM + PnM) + (PnCnM) + 10 => (PnCnM) = (PnC + CnM + PnM)  100 For (PnCnM) to be minimum , (PnC + CnM + PnM) should be minimum . So we need to the minimum overlap between the three sets. For P and C , P=80 C=70 Then the total number of students that passed physcis and chemistry = 80+70 = 150 But there are only 90 students. Therefore a minimum of 60 students passed physics and chemistry . Similary for C and M , C+M=70+40=110 Therefore a minimum of 20 students passed Chemistry and Maths And for P and M, P+M=120 Therefore a minimum of 30 students passed Physics and Maths. Mimimum value of (PnC + CnM + PnM) = 60+20+30=110 Minimum value of (PnCnM) = 110100 =10 Answer C

In a class of 100 students, 80 passed Physics, 70 passed Chemistry, and 40 passed Math. If 10 students failed in all the three subjects, at least how many of the students passed all the three subjects?
(A) 0 (B) 5 (C) 10 (D) 20 (E) 25
Out of 100 students 10 failed in all 3 subjects. So, 90 students passed at least one of the subjects  Physics, Chemistry or Math. We need to find the minimum value of the students passed in all 3 subs or the min. value of the overlapping of the 3 sets having  80, 70 and 40 students, where the total sh be 90. 80 : 10  90
20 : 70  90
40 : 50  90
The min. overlap of 80 and 70 is: 80+7090 = 60. The min. overlap of the common 60 and 40 is: 60+4090 = 10. This is the answer. C.

Total = A + B + C  (Sum of 2 overlaps)  2(all 3 overlaps) + Neither 100 = 80 + 70 + 40  (Sum of 2 overlaps)  2(all 3 overlaps) + 10 100 = 200  (Sum of 2 overlaps)  2(all 3 overlaps)
(Sum of 2 overlaps) + 2(all 3 overlaps) = 100  (1) Also, max value of (Sum of 2 overlaps) + (all 3 overlaps) = 90  (2) (1)  (2) All 3 overlaps = 10.
Number of students who passed all 3 subjects = 10

Total Students = 100 Total passed = Total  failed = 100  10 = 90 Now the question is what is the minimum number of students passed in all three subjects? Here our aim is to plug in such nummbers so that sum of total students passed is 90 and students passed in a subject individually remains what is given in question. We notice, Choices A to E are in ascending order and we need the least number. so we will start plugging in the values from A to E. Option  A, Passed in All three subjects = 0 1. Passed in Physics + Chemistry = 50 2. Passed in Chemistry + Maths = 20 3. Passed in Maths + Physics = 20 4. Passed in All three subjects (P,C,M) = 0 In this we notice that students passed in Physics = 1 + 3 + 4 = 50 + 20 + 0 = 90. But It is given that In physics only 80 passed. Hence, "A" is wrong. Option  B, Passed in All three subjects = 5 1. Passed in Physics + Chemistry = 50 2. Passed in Chemistry + Maths = 15 3. Passed in Maths + Physics = 20 4. Passed in All three subjects (P,C,M) = 5 In this we notice that students passed in Physics = 1 + 3 + 4 = 50 + 20 + 5 = 75. But It is given that In physics only 80 passed. Hence, "B" is wrong.Option  C, Passed in All three subjects = 10 1. Passed in Physics + Chemistry = 50 2. Passed in Chemistry + Maths = 10 3. Passed in Maths + Physics = 20 4. Passed in All three subjects (P,C,M) = 10 In this we notice that students passed in Physics, chemistry and maths are equal to given values and sum of all passed students is 90. Hence, "C" is Correct. We do not need to test D and E because question states "at least".

My solution: ( C is the correct answer) 80 +70 + 40  (numbers of those passed only 2 subjects (A) + 2* numbers of those passed 3 subjects (B)) = 100  10 =90 => A+2*B = 100 Trials and errors: The question asks about the least possible value, so we start from the smallest. (1) B = 0 => A = 100. But with 80, 70, and 40 students passed Physics, Chemistry, and Maths, the largest number of those passed only 2 subjects is 95 (max A =95) (80+15), as below => (1) INCORRECT (2) B=5 => A=90. Since 5 students passed all 3 subjects, the remains are 75 Physics, 65 Chemistry, and 35 Maths. Same to (1), the max A = 87 (75+12), as below => (2) INCORRECT (3) B=10 => A=80. Since 10 students passed all 3 subjects, the remains are 70 Physics, 60 Chemistry, and 30 Maths. Now it is possible to have 80 students passed only 2 subjects (70+10), as below So (C) is CORRECT

In a class of 100 students, 80 passed Physics, 70 passed Chemistry, and 40 passed Math. If 10 students failed in all the three subjects, at least how many of the students passed all the three subjects?
Total Students = Physics (P) + Chemistry (C) + Maths (M)  (PnC+PnM+CnM) + (PnCnM) + Neither 100 = 80 + 70 + 40  (PnC+PnM+CnM) + (PnCnM) + 10 (PnCnM) = (PnC+PnM+CnM)  100..............(1)
Question: at least how many of the students passed all the three subjects? Solution: Minimise (PnCnM)
So to minimise (PnCnM), we need to minimise (PnC+PnM+CnM), according to (1).
To get the overlap,
P+C=80+70=150 But the Total students are 10010=90 So PnC could be 15090=60
P+M=80+40=120 But total students are 90 So PnM could be 12090=30
C+M=70+40=110 But the total students are 90 So CnM could be 11090=20
Adding the overlaps we have 60+30+20=110 Or (PnC+PnM+CnM) = 110
So (PnCnM) = 110100=10 (According to (1))
Answer: C

QUESTION #13:
In a class of 100 students, 80 passed Physics, 70 passed Chemistry, and 40 passed Math. If 10 students failed in all the three subjects, at least how many of the students passed all the three subjects?
(A) 0 (B) 5 (C) 10 (D) 20 (E) 25
Answer C
100 = P + C + M  (Sum of 2 subjects passed)  2(all three subject passed) + Neither 100 = 80 + 70 + 40  (2 subject)  2(3 subject) + 10 (2 subject) + 2(3 subject) = 100
Also, passed in at least one subject is 90, i.e., passed in 1 subject + passed in 2 subject + passed in 3 subject = 90 To maximize pass in at least 2 subject, passed in 1 subject = 0, i.e., passed in 2 subject + passed in 3 subject = 90
From the above two equation, we can get passed in all three subject = 10.

Total students = 100, Physics Passed = 80, Chemistry Passed = 70, Maths Passed = 40, All 3 failed =10. Therefore Students who have not failed all three = 100 10 =90 Out of these 90 students we have to find out at the least students who passed in all 3 subjects.
Out of 90 students , 80 have passed in Physics. So 10 have not passed in Physics. Out of 90 students, 70 have passed in Chemistry. So 20 have not passed in Chemistry. To minimise the number of students who have passed in all 3, lets take 30 students to have passed in 10 and 20 students who have failed in Physics and Chemistry respectively. So there are 10 more students left who have passed in Maths and that will be the overlap region students who have passed in all three subjects.
So 10 is the answer which is choice C.

(A) 0 (B) 5 (C) 10 (D) 20 (E) 25 Ans:C ahh I marked the wrong one again I marked D in a hurry. The answer can be arrived with the help of a formula> Total=A+B+C (sum of exactly 2 groups overlap) 2(All three) +Neither 100=80+70+40 (A)2(B)+ 10 100=A2B 100=A+2B we need to find B. It is to found out at least how many students passed in all. Sum of exactly two groups overlaps can be maximum 80 because it cannot be greater than the number of students passing in a single subject. so, 100=80+2B B=10 Answer is C. Will I get points for correct explanation, even my answer was wrong.

Thank you! JAMBOBREE OFFICIAL SOLUTION:In the question on Venn diagrams when we have to calculate either the maximum or the minimum value as in this question ,we find the number line method one of the convenient methods We will represent the total number of 100 students on the number line as shown we will start from the left to right and place the group with largest number .i.e physics in this case and the place the group with second largest number .i.e chemistry in this case from the right to left. Also it is mentioned that 10 students did not pass in any subject so we will keep them separate now we need to place the 40 students who passed the math subject among the 90 students as shown in the number line so that the over lap of all the three subjects the minimum. We can place 20 from 1 to 20 and 10 students from 80 to 90 but the remaining 10 students who passed math will been to be placed between 20 to 80 i.e they will be the students who have already passed physics and chemistry .so the minimum number of students who have passed all the three subjects is 10 Attachment:

Now I understood it with your full explanation. I have more questions:
when I say min is 10, it means it may get higher than 10. what would be the case if 15 or 20? what would be the max number ? I think max = 40 students as I can't exceed number of students who passed in math.
Thanks

Alternately we may also use the following method, which you all may find useful
We are here worried about the no. of students passed, so  Total no. of students passed = 10010=90 (Since 10 failed known from question)
Now since we need to find the min. students passed all 3 P&C = 70+8090=15090=60 (P&C)&M = 60+4090=10
Therefore Ans: C (10)

Total = A + B + C  (Sum of 2 overlaps)  2(all 3 overlaps) + Neither 100 = 80 + 70 + 40  (Sum of 2 overlaps)  2(all 3 overlaps) + 10 100 = 200  (Sum of 2 overlaps)  2(all 3 overlaps)
(Sum of 2 overlaps) + 2(all 3 overlaps) = 100  (1) Also, max value of (Sum of 2 overlaps) + (all 3 overlaps) = 90  (2) (1)  (2) All 3 overlaps = 10.
Number of students who passed all 3 subjects = 10
Answer: C Can anyone please explain the area "Also, max value of (Sum of 2 overlaps) + (all 3 overlaps) = 90  (2)" How can we say this? If you tend to get confused with formulas then refer the following explanation

If you tend to get confused with formulas then refer the following explanation I can understand the later part of the explanation but can't follow the first line i.e. 2(a+b+c)+d+e+f=80... Where from can we derive the same? Please explain....
